Meanwhile, a French diplomatic source claimed Paris has an export control system that takes into account the nature of the ...

Where do Yemeni missiles come from?

1396/11/9 | 22:06
  Saudi Arabia’s brutal military aggression against Yemen has taken quite a few drastic turns ever since its beginning in March 2015. The deadly war has seen Saudis use illegal weapons such as cluster bombs over populated areas without any raised eyebrows in the West.   The war has also seen the Riyadh regime’s allies such as the US and the UK ramp up their arms deals with the monarchy despite international outcry. All of this, however, has been overshadowed by one question the answer to which has so far defied observers: How ...

Saudis Transfer $2 Billion to Prop Up Yemeni Allies’ Currency

1396/11/1 | 22:06
Answering petitions from the Saudi-backed faction that rules southern Yemen, the Saudi Kingdom has announced they are depositing $2 billion in that faction’s Central Bank, aiming to shore up their currency, which is plummeting to new lows in the face of endless conflict.   Saudi officials are presenting it as a “gift to the legitimate Yemeni government,” and not a loan. That’s likely a wise move, because even with a military victory, the odds that the faction will ever have $2 billion to pay it back is slim indeed, given the disastrous ...
